Forum: etree Subject: Band Summary Idea

Occassionally I'll browse around for other bands to listen to; I'll either scroll thru Today's History or I'll look at the Big List. There's so friggen many... Maybe those who are familiar/advocates of these random bands could have some sort of way of summarizing and describing what each of the bands are like... sort of like writing a review of the band. I know we have access to each band's Home Page, but maybe another perspective would help spread the word about all this great live music. If it weren't for the LMA, I may naver have gone out to see Carbon Leaf.

You mean making a post to the forum with a description of the band? Sounds like a decent idea to me. Let me know what you think of this:

- descriptions should include recommended songs/performances.
- 1 descriptions thread per artist, responses welcomed.
- Subject of post should be "Description of X" where X is the artist name. This makes it much easier to find them.

You got it exactly right Brad. Others may be interested... (see the 'New Bands' thread currently in progress). Is there anything I can do to help?

Including a few keywords for the artist might be handy too, in case they can get worked into some future scheme here. As would a part like, "If you like this band, you might like bands x,y,z."

I bought a subscription to the magazine Relix 3 years ago & there is a lot of info in there on bands that I see on LMA. It helps me decide which band's shows to check out. Their Website URL is
http://www.relix.com/.

Other sources for info can be found on http://www.jambase.com/ & http://jambands.com/

All three of these are excellent resources for helping to use the LMA.
